I bought twin boxwoods with red bows for Christmas to stand guard at my front door. They add to the formality of the entrance to our colonial style home. This Spring I'm in the process of removing old shrubs, slowly replacing them with younger, healthier stock. I thought the whole perennial border had been destroyed when the border was torn out and the front of the house looked like a tornado had blown through. Formality went out the window as the passion of Springtime will not be denied. Nor will the honey bees as I try to push them aside to give the border a June haircut.
